Governor Nyesom Wike is suffering from the paranoia of the belief that the All Progressives Congress is planning to impeach him through the State House of Assembly.
Wike says the plan of the ruling party is to endeavour to win the upcoming legislative rerun elections in the state, so as to be well positioned to get the majority in the state House of Assembly and ultimately impeach him.
This is what keeps Nyesom Wike awake at night, bereft of sleep and full of thoughts.
But the governor says he wouldn’t sit idly and watch the chain of events leading to his impeachment, take place.
Speaking during a phone-in programme at a Port Harcourt-based radio station on Saturday, Wike vowed to get involved in the March 19 rerun elections in Rivers State.
“They (APC) want to win all the House of Assembly seats that are declared for rerun so that they can impeach me. They want me to fold my hands because I am a governor? Nobody does that. I am not a governor that will not just sit in his office.”
“Do they (APC) want me as the chief security officer and one of the leaders of the PDP in this state to fold my hands when I know the strategies they have adopted? They want to arrest all PDP members, to intimidate them and put them off before the election so that they will have their way in the rerun and I said no, we cannot continue to allow that to happen.”
“I am going to be involved. Nobody will rig this election and you must be popular to win this election. Rivers people must decide whom they want to vote for.”
